Hello,
I’m from Troop 1776 in Spring Branch, TX. We’re looking for three people, at least two Scouts, to join us on a scuba adventure this July. You must already be certified in scuba to dive or, you can chill on the boat and snorkel when mood hits you. We have male and female Scout leaders going so we will be able to supervise boys and girls. For some us this will be our second, even third visit to Sea Base. That’s how much we love the place.
Come join our big family for the most relaxed “High Adventure “ in Scouting.
Look forward to hearing from you, Chris Kelley

Comments:  We have up to 4 openings for male or female scouts for our St. Thomas Trek on August 3rd, 2020. (The date entered when I’m filing out this notice to accept other youth looks like it says March 8th, but our trek is actually August 8th). This is my 4th Sea Base trek, and my wife’s 3rd, and our new Scoutmaster’s 1st trek. We have been to the Bahamas and the Florida keys for sailing adventures and we now look forward to our first trip to St. Thomas. I have been Scoutmaster for both our Boy Troop and now for our Girl troop, as well as Venture Crew advisor. My wife is now serving as our Venture Crew advisor after serving as CubMaster and then Asst. SM and Asst. Venture Crew Advisor. We have taken scouts from different units with us to Sea Base, as well as to Philmont, and Northern Tier, in addition to leading National Jamboree Contingents, so we have lots of experience taking care of all scouts in our care.
We could possible take one more adult and three youth, or four youth.
We plan to spend 2 days in Miami on our way to St. Thomas where we plan to visit the beach and other local attractions.
Give me a call or text, or email, 903-746-1468. If you do not receive a reply via email, it may have gone to my junk folder, in which case send me a text or call.
